Discussion on: What are your thoughts on Tailwind CSS?

I'm a frontend developer who is working with CSS/SCSS/Sass for a couple of years. Of course I thought about using TalwindCSS and tried it a couple of times. I like the principle and their docs/website are awesome. There are only two things that hold me to use it in the future:

  1. Unlearning css. Writing CSS is most of the time more complex than writing code in Javascript. However if you know how to write 'good' CSS, using tailwind would not have many benefits in my opinion and will ensure you'll unlearn how to use css.
  2. I don't prefer class names that are longer than the width of my screen.
